Xian Lim will no longer be part of Bridges, the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye that was supposed to star John Lloyd Cruz.
JLC was initially tapped to topbill Bridges along with Jericho Rosales and Maja Salvador.
At that time, JLC was in the middle of negotiating his contract with ABS-CBN.
As a result, Xian was chosen to replace John Lloyd in the upcoming drama series.
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last November 11, Xian revealed that he already started taping for Bridges.
“Nakakadalawang taping day na ako," he disclosed.
“I'm really excited to begin with the soap.
“Laking pasasalamat ko sa Star Creatives dahil pinagkatiwalaan nila ako for this project.”
